Speaker's Bio

Nils Goedecke is a trained biophysicist with a PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Imperial College London, where he applied laser based direct-write lithography for microfluidics in the group of Andreas Manz. After his PhD in 2003, he was a Postdoc in the BioMEMS Laboratory at MIT. In 2005, he moved to Zurich where he was appointed team leader for microfluidics and senior researcher at ETH Zurich. In 2012, he became group leader at the Biomechanics Lab at the University Hospital where he was responsible for the in-house microfabrication facility until 2017. From 2010 to early 2018, Nils ran his own startup company Microduits.

At Heidelberg Instruments Nano, Nils Goedecke is part of the sales team, responsible to identify and consult future customers, who would benefit from nanopatterning with our NanoFrazor systems.



Webinar Series description

The “NanoFrazor Technology” webinars will explain the main features and limitations of NanoFrazor lithography. They will be hosted by the key experts of our R&D teams. You will learn how our technology works, and where and why it is superior or inferior to conventional nanolithography techniques. We will also share the results and insights of our ongoing development projects.

The “NanoFrazor Applications” series will show examples from different application fields, where the NanoFrazor was used to fabricate unique nanopatterns and devices. The guest speakers - scientists who actively use NanoFrazor - will talk about their work and recent results.

The “NanoFrazor Sales” webinars will focus on NanoFrazor products. We will talk about hardware components and software features of the NanoFrazor systems. We will also cover the cost-of-ownership and how to receive a quick return on investment. Finally, we will also offer a dedicated webinar where you will learn about the various funding options for NanoFrazor systems and how to maximize your chances to get your funding proposal accepted.


Test yourself and win! After each webinar, you can test what you have learned in a short multiple-choice questions challenge. With 10 or more successful tests, you will receive a small prize and a unique Nanofabrication Guru certificate.
